Clean and comfortable B & B. Lovely friendly staff who made us feel very at home. A short tuk tuk ride into the centre of Kandy but away from the the noise and traffic. Breakfast was lovely - the kids loved the pancakes and waffles. We had dinner one evening which was very tasty but much more expensive than you... More

We stayed here for one night and were welcomed by the lovely Derek. He is such a great manager who really went out his way to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. The room was spacious and looked out over a beautiful garden. We had curry at night which was delicious- I would definitely recommend eating... More

Amazing food - particularly the breakfasts! The team were very welcoming and attentive. The rooms and all areas were clean with lovely flowers around the place. The location is very tranquil and relaxing - a bit further out of Kandy town but fine with a 3-wheeler / tuk tuk or short car ride. We had a lovely tour around the... More

We booked a stay in Sweet Cinnamon Kandy last February for our 1st wedding anniversary. Based on the photos and the price (315 $ for 3 nights), I was under the impression that it was something but found out that it's not what we expected. The person in charge "Priyan" met us and he completely understood the situation. He promised... More

Stayed for two nights in this place in March. It is not a typical hotel, but more of a family run place. But that was not a problem since the room was nice and large and the staff was very friendly. Also we would highly recommend the food in this place - the breakfast and dinners we had were very... More

I stayed in Feb 2014 and will definitely return next time I am in Kandy. The service is incredible, the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are clean, spacious and well presented. The area is very quiet. The food is delicious and generous. Fantastic!

After staying here for two nights at the beginning of February I have to say that I cannot understand the glowing reviews it gets on TripAdvisor. The owner and his wife were away at the time of our stay but I do not think that this should be used as an excuse for what I thought was a very unsatisfactory... More

We recently stayed at Sweet Cinnamon for 3 nights and really fell in love with the place. We arrived early after a long flight and train ride to be greeted with a very welcome cup of tea and fabulous carrot cake. Our room was made available immediately and it was heaven! So thoughtfully laid out with flower petals on the... More
